The secret to these brats is preparing them in boiling beer before you grill them and then slathering the bun with a homemade mustard and bacon butter.

  • Servings: 6


1 stick Butter, room temperature
3 slices Bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled, and cooled
2 Tbsp Prepared Yellow Mustard
1× 12 oz bottle Beer of Choice
6 Uncooked Bratwurst
Brat Buns


In a small bowl, stir together the softened butter, cooked bacon, and mustard. Mix well and set aside while preparing brats. Pour beer into a large skillet, add brats, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, turning brats after 10 minutes. Remove brats from beer and discard beer. Grill the brats over direct medium high heat until brats are cooked through and nicely browned, turning often. Warm buns on grill. To serve, spread some mustard butter on insides of buns, place brat in warm bun, and serve.
